Poirot This week Greg Bakun begins a series of articles for Brit-Streaming looking at the final series of Agatha Christie’s Poirot. This beloved series has been on the air since 1989 and sadly comes to an end this month. AcornTV is making these episodes available on their streaming service with many of the episodes as exclusives to the service. The first article looks at the premiere episode of Series 13, The Big Four. This episode is a lot more than style over substance as we follow Poirot through a complicated series of events. Who are the people behind the Big Four and why are they trying to edge the UK closer to the Second World War? In addition to the in-depth look at this episode, there is a ton of information about what is coming up on AcornTV and what to look out for during the month of August. Read all this, and more, in the latest installment of Brit-Streaming!

Other recent films include: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Boyhood, Transformers: Age of Extinction, Snowpiercer, Transformers: Age of Extinction, Snowpiercer, Chef, 22 Jump Street, How to Train Your Dragon 2, The Signal, Edge of Tomorrow, The Fault in Our Stars, Maleficent, Night Moves, A Million Ways to Die in the West, X-Men: Days of Future Past, Godzilla, Neighbors, and The Amazing Spider-Man 2..
